Borsona Bellagio Crochet Tote Bag
This pattern is for an extra-large shopping bag, but I know a couple of people who could fill this with their daily essentials, too! The stripe pattern makes this tote ideal for using up your scraps, so see if you can create a beautiful color palette with the yarn you already have.

Flower Hexagon Bag
If you crochet in public, this bag is the perfect project for you. Crochet each of the hexagons separately — you’ll probably memorize the pattern after the first few — then seam them all together to construct the bag.

Crochet Coin Purse
Don’t need a tote? Maybe a coin purse is more your style. This cute little pouch can hold coins, or it can be used to hold an ID and cash when you don’t feel like carrying around a larger bag.

Granny squares create the simple bunny on this adorable bag. Though little ones don’t have cash or an ID to carry around, this tote is ideal for those little treasures they want to keep safe.

I love the red and white combo of this design, but a rainbow version using a variety of colors would also be awesome. This bag’s handles are reinforced by leather and the interior is lined, so you know the bag will hold lots of weight and last through many summers.

Felted bags are one of the most durable types of bags you can crochet. Use a variegated yarn for automatic striping that doesn’t require you to change colors every couple of rows.
If you’ve never tried felting, it’s super easy to do. Get more info on felting your finished project here.

Crocheted Flower Purse
What better pattern for summer than one full of flowers? This pattern was inspired by a Japanese bag that designer Meladora spotted. Use scrap yarn to make a colorful garden of blooms or stick to a color palette of just a few of your favorite colors.

Summer Squares Beach Tote
If you’re heading to the beach this summer, a tote like this is your best bet. The mesh squares let all the wet towels and swimsuits breathe, while the cotton fiber is washable and sturdy.
